Ernest Populus(DJ EPop) from Seattle Wa, started DJing in 1993 in a friends basement and quickly started doing private events, weddings and was playing at the Lowrider Magazine car shows in Seattle, Chehalis and Portland.
Got out of it for a while to go to college to get my degree in Radiology. In 2007, after that short hiatus I got back into the game and been hittin it ever since..
I’m an open format style DJ so I play everything from Hip Hop, R&B, Deep House, NuDisco, to Tech House. I’ve played at Nikki Beach Cabo, Blue Marlin Ibiza Cabo, Club Knotty Cabo, Puerto Vallarta Mexico, Saint Tropez, Club INTL Scottsdale, SkyBar LA, Departure Portland, and many places in and around Bellevue, and Seattle Wa.
My current residency is Saturdays and Sundays at Dock & Drink in the Hyatt Hotel on the shores of Lake Washington in Renton Wa.
Growing up, my love for music came from my parents who constantly played Gladys Knight & the Pips, Teddy Pendergrass, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye.
My House music background comes from the love of disco, and the fact that I enjoy what 120bpm and higher does to people on the dance floor.
I’m just all about the love of music, having lots of fun and the power of creating happiness/vibes through the sound of music..
